"Let's Play" is an internal Jumpstart funding program being launched at the RECC. This program helps financially disadvantaged children get involved in organized sport and recreational opportunities by covering registration costs. The goal of this program is to help those children that would not otherwise be able to participate in a RECC physical activity program without the assistance of the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program.
The program (for children and youth aged 4 – 18) will fund the full registration costs of RECC recreation programs. Parents can apply for funding to cover the cost of 1 program/season per child, up to 4 times a year. This gives children and youth the opportunity to remain active throughout the year and encourages them to try different activities. Parents can apply for funding for multiple children. Applications must be accompanied with a letter of reference explaining that the applicant is in financial need of assistance.
The application brochure can be downloaded here, filled out and returned to the Rath Eastlink Community Centre front desk as per the instructions on the back of the brochure. These brochures are also available at the RECC in hard copy form.
